From 2 By 2 Gaming and released in July 2016, five-reel Dreams of Fortune slot comes with 30 fixed Paylines across three rows and has a rural theme. There’s a hilly background, with bright, colourful storybook visuals completed in gorgeous detail.
How to play
Spin Away on Dreams of Fortune slot from 0.30 a pop and, as you’d expect, it’s fully compatible for mobile.
The game pays out from left to right for winning combinations, apart from the Scatter, which shells out in either direction. All wins are multiplied by coins staked per line, except those involving the Scatter.
Theme-related symbols including a shepherd’s crook, money pouch, bed, house, sheep and shepherd. These join the typical playing cards on the reels, alongside the game’s logo.
Dreams of Fortune slot special features
The Wild (the shepherd) does its usual thing of replacing other icons apart from the Scatter symbol.
There are three of these in Dreams of Fortune slot, each one distinct, and it’s here that the game really comes into its own. They unfold as follows:
This kicks in randomly on any whirl, anywhere on the grid. Wilds appear and can descend on any group of icons so that they too become Wilds. With these newly Wild icons in place, a fresh payout is made.
Activate these in the usual way by landing at least three Scatters. One of the following will then be presented to you:
- Toss N Turn bonus round: Your seven, 11 or 15 free whirls play out on a newly expanded game engine comprising five reels, an extra row and 40 Paylines. On every whirl, the snoozing shepherd turns over, converting wherever he lands into a Wild reel.
You should also watch out for the sheep, which show up at random over the clock, and put you in line for a further five freebies.
- Wild Dream bonus round: This one bestows 10, 15 or 25 free spins according to the number of triggering Scatters, and the number of ways to win on the reel set grows to an impressive 243, giving you potential scope for heftier wins. As with the option described above, you can trigger up to a further five freebies here, too. Again, the slumbering shepherd shows up once every free whirl, to turn a single reel Wild.
There isn’t a progressive jackpot here. Instead, the top non-progressive prize is 121,500 coins.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player in this game is reasonable enough at 96.02%. You’ll likely find volatility falls generally within the medium range, while the hit rate is good at more than one in three or 35.90%.
Dreams of Fortune slot combines some light-hearted yet superb cartoon-style visuals with some pretty hefty bonus rounds. It’s also relatively straightforward if you like your games not to be too complex.
However, one or two reviewers have pointed out the lack of multipliers during the free spins round.
Not least because of the snoozing shepherd, the action in this game can feel rather sedate. It’s possibly a good one on which to hone your playing if you’re relatively new to slots games.
Give it a go, and see how you get on.
